Jerome approved of Obutsu's weapon choice as he pulled out another magazine for his rifle.  Getting low, he thought.  Hadn't really expected to need to use as many rounds as this was needing, but there was nothing for it.  Going to need to pick his shots from here on in.

"Your Djinnery worked well Blue! Keep it up, apparently its pretty stupid."   A contingency plan involving Tom and a demo charge was forming in Jerome's mind.  "Tom, grab package #1 and get ready to move."

Jerome had been careful not to install a full AI in Tom and Jerry.  The programs were good, but lacked agency.   Even then, they had occasional odd outbursts that made him wonder. 

"Blue, you want me on the gun so you can focus on Dijinnery?"

João felt a shudder of odd relief as metal and gore burst from the monster. "Sangra," he muttered. The explosion shook him from his shock and the warrior quickly settled into combat mode.

Hearing the thing's reaction to the assault, it occurred to Obutsu that it could feel pain. That was something he could exploit. He pulled an incendiary round from his pack and loaded it into the LV 10-60. He dashed down to the cargo bay, ignoring LV's screams, and scrambled atop the mech legs he had used earlier. From his perch he could see the infested mecha striking the rusted junk, and the exposed flesh of the knee joint. Powering on his weapon, it linked with his targeting eye and he focused his attention on the wounded joint. João drew his weapon, waited for the targeting sensor to signal, and pulled the trigger.

I currently have 3 whole worlds that I operate in.
For decades I have been developing KININ, a full spectrum D&D world. In this world, anything goes. Almost every option from any legit source, and many from third party appear in this world. I have run it, 2nd, 3rd, 3.5, and now 5th. I am currently migrating the whole thing to Obsidian Portal.

There you will also find HAMON. Which is inspred by the Conan stories by Robert E. Howard and Elric stories by Michael Morcock. A primal world of low magic and High Aventure. I am also building a Hamon Sourcebook on 5e Homebrewery.

I look forward to sharing these with you.

The World we play in is of my own imagination called "Sentara"  an actuality it's a Sentient planet that brings all the Time and places and characters together in one "Playground" environment. It has two suns that revolve around it, surrounded by a black sky at night with what appears as "Diamonds" in the sky and an ever crescent moon which is an actually a Very lit flying fortress - Like Moontressa in "Treasure Planet" the cartoon...However their is No actually Space Travel between Sentara to any other solar system because no one has ever breached the Blackness or reached the "stars", because once Sentara pulls you in from where or when ever you came from you can't leave Sentara.

The decrepit infested Gladiator lumbered forward, Blue's psychic conduit glowing luminous in front of it. It's cilia waved excitedly. Rockets punched into the old armor around the machine's knees. The armor plate on the left knee buckled, exposing the rusted ruin of the knee actuator, and the fibrous tendrils of alien matter wrapped around them. A fluid somewhere between blood and motor oil erupted from the joint, and it obviously displeased the thing as it made a weird chittering grating noise inside the mech torso. It slowed its pursuit as it was seemingly capable of feeling pain. Blue's rusted iron lance struck true, smashing through what little remained of the cockpit before glancing down and penetrating into the torso. The cilia that weren't crushed or sheered off by the hunk of tetanus retracted into the armor shell and more of the weird blood oil ran down from the neck hole. Angered and injured, the monster struck into the side of the hulk that the spear came from, shaking it. Pieces of metal started raining down around it.

LV screamed inside the cargo bay, obviously distressed by the psychic noise that the monster was making, and possibly by the fact that she was being pelted with a stream of spent shell casings and exhaust from rocket rounds.

"Scratch that, it's not beautiful, sorry! Also, please don't yell, I'll try a little of my djinn-ery before I try gunnery."
Blue hummed in Elvish to focus the unbridled energy, but especially one prancing mind. Oh, that mind is mine, as sure as Eärendil has earned the right to set foot upon Valinor. The Lake of Victoria hummed back, reverberating with song.
I lúme utúlie,
A tirno Silmarillion,
Tienna narwa
No rocco néca,
Yan i esse ná Qualme

Hour has come,
O guard of Silmarils,
Onto road fiery-red
On a pale horse,
Whose name is Death

The tank sped from the battle-beast, as it sped forward, and Blue's mind reached out, pulling, to the precariously perched plates of fragmented hulks above. The crew inside felt the pull too, weakly, but still, a tugging at every square inch, a rattling of the beer bottles in the fridge. One hull fragment, akin to a long shard, a thirty-feet lance of serrated metal, listened to Blue's call, and descended, point first, into the blown-open cockpit of the Hekatonthiere. If it did not stop the thing, at least the cancerous 'Mech would have a hard time navigating between the wings and other protrusions of the hulks with *this* sticking up like a lightning rod.

The turbo tank has a 20mm cannon with standard explosive rounds

DM Suggestion: called shots, and aimed shots.

I like the idea of going TK, and would suggest exploiting the surrounding terrain. You and the monster are in the midst of rusted metal hulks and wreckage from massive construction projects two centuries past. Lots of jagged metal, beams, etc

Next up is slasher, in the sense of the horror movie monster type. Give me your psychopathic killers, roaming through the dark to murder poor, innocent victims.

Echoing Dozus' question - what kind of ammo does the tank's machine gun have? I figure that blasting conventional rounds at it is pretty futile.
The rifle may not do me a whole lot of good, either.
So, if there's no good ammo in the MG, my best guess would be to give it a good TK shove?
